Porsche 964 Turbo Flatnose 0 600x370 at Spotted for Sale: Porsche 964 Turbo ‘Flatnose

Porsche collectors everywhere pay attention! Here’s your chance to own one of the rarest and most interesting cars in the German firm’s history. It’s a 964, it’s a turbo, it’s right-hand-drive, and it’s a Flatnose. This 1993 Porsche 964 Turbo ‘Flatnose’, now available for sale in the UK, is one of only 12 ever made.

Offered at Hexagon Modern Classics, the super unique Porsche 964 Turbo ‘Flatnose’ is in pristine condition with only 630 miles on the odometer. The car boasts a 385bhp 3.6-litre flat six-cylinder engine with  enlarged turbocharger, modified camshafts, valve timing, cylinder heads, inlet manifolds and intermediate flanges, an extra oil cooler and four-pipe exhaust system, and comes with black exterior and interior. More importantly, it has a full aero kit and pop-up headlights derived from the 968.

But none of that matters really, because the only reason to buy this car is because of its flat-nosedness! The ‘Flatnose’ models were a limited special series of 76 Exclusive Department-built Turbo Flachbau cars which at the time looked pretty hideous to be frank and were dropped from the range. But these days they are among the most sought after modern classics on account of their rarity.

Paul Michaels, chairman of Hexagon Classics, said: “At the time, only a select few were offered the ‘Flatnose’ models – they weren’t publicised, they were almost ‘under the counter’.  Not only is this incredible 964 possibly the nearest thing to a brand-new Porsche 964 Turbo, it is also one of the rarest and most important time-warp Porsches we’ve ever had the pleasure of offering for sale. A true collectors’ item.”
